A Taste of the Sierra at the Ridge Tahoe

Famished. Starving. Hungry enough to eat a horse. We’ve all been there: you’ve traveled a long way and you’re in need of a quality meal that’ll fill you and your family. Nothing is more disappointing than getting to your hotel and finding no viable food options, meaning you’ll have to venture out into a new place in search of sustenance or – we shudder to even think of this – go to bed hungry!

Searching for food? Look no further than the Ridge Tahoe!

Fortunately, the Ridge Tahoe has several dining options that will fit your various needs, whether it’s a picky eater, a pescatarian or just a very hungry group. Learn about these various options below.
